One North development making progress

Northeast News

If you’ve driven North on I-35 from the downtown area recently, you’ve no doubt noticed quite a bit of dirt moving on the Southeast corner of the Missouri route 210 exit ramp.

What was once home to an ADM grain elevator complex is now part of a massive new mixed-use development that later this year will feature a variety of dining establishments, hotels, a golf range and a new grocery store. The current centerpiece to the development is the stunning new home of Mierotto’s Jewelers, who moved from their cramped Vivion Road showroom to a 34,000 square foot, three-story headquarters, complete with room for trunk shows and private, invitation only sales.

The 56-acre development will also feature a “spine road” from the 16th Avenue exit off northbound I-35 with direct access to the shopping center from the south; a big convenience factor for residents of Historic Northeast, the city’s River Market area and the growing downtown population. East Bottoms-based Clarkson Construction has also signed an agreement to develop infrastructure at the site.

Rick Worner, Managing Director for National Realty Advisors, the leasing agent for the new development, expressed optimism as he works to finalize a number of agreements, including the signing of an operator for the 16,000 foot grocery operation.

“I am excited about the progress we have made so far on the One North development in North Kansas City,” Worner said. “We hope to have several anchor tenants under construction by June 1st.”
